In an age when the malfeasance of international banking has alerted exploited populations the world over to the unsustainability of an economic system predicated on perpetual growth, it is time the left ended its melancholic accommodation with capitalism. In the new capitalism of networked information technologies, our very ability to communicate is exploited, but revolution is still possible if we organize on the basis of our common and collective desires.

An innovative work of pressing relevance, The Communist Horizon offers nothing less than a manifesto for a new collective politics.--Publisher description."@en
